A Truth

I love this line. The context is irrelevant:

As is the custom with intellectual cowards, he wants his ideas taken seriously; he just doesn't want them judged according to traditional evidentiary and logical standards.

Google is indeed cool. However, as goodle has a couple dozen pages to shovel through that match those words without actually matching the quote, I thought it would be even cooler if someone could be nice enough to give me a two word answer... something along the lines of "Noam Chomsky" or something similar.

Obviously, Sean, you are FAR too important a man to have that sort of time, so I understand. Sorry to take up even a moment of your valuable existence. Really, I am.

However, maybe someone else hereabouts CAN be nice enough to answer me.

Thanks a bunch.

It was in the National Reviewlast week and it was written about Maureen Dowd. I switched the gender for my quote because that's what I do.

Thanks Emerson. You are even cooler than Google! (The old, cool Google, not the new, evil Google)
